Rockford Fire units were dispatched for a structure fire at the intersection of Day Ave. and Mulberry
St. First Engine Company arrived and found a condemned, vacant residential structure with fire
showing from the windows on northwest corner of the 2nd floor. The Engine deployed an attack line
and made an offensive attack. During fire suppression, heavy fire was found on the west side of the
structure’s 2nd floor. All interior companies were ordered out of the structure by Command and a
defensive strategy was implemented. The fire was then knocked down using external handlines.

extinguish hot spots, and overhaul. No victims located. RFD Investigators, Com-Ed, NICOR and
Building Department assisted on the scene. Cause is undetermined at this time. No civilian injuries of
